Established in 2005, ROAR (Rwandan Orphans Assistance Response) has raised thousands of dollars for chairty though a variety of high-profile parties, auctions and fashion shows.

The central African nation of Rwanda is scarred by decades of civil war and an intertribal genocide that saw 800,000 people killed over a 100-day period in 1994. The killings created a generation of orphans and immense challenges as a new government and international donors struggle to house, school and feed them.
